Full text of "Howell Arabic Grammar all 7 books"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non- commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

§ 159, Uninflectedness is the inseparability of the 
termination of the word from one state, literally or eon* 

Btructively, like the inseparability of s)iip> from Kasra, 

JJU from Damma, and ^J from Fatha (Sh). The un- 
infl. n. is the one whose final's quiescence or vowel is 
not by reason of an op. (M,MM). The uninfl. [n. (Jm)] 
is what (1) is related to the orig. uninfl., [vid. the p., pret 
v., and imp. without the <J , which relation is detailed 
(below) by the author of the M(Jm)] ; (2) occurs uncon- 
structed: [being of 2 kinds, either uninfl. from the lack of 
the motive for inflection, vid. construction, like ns. enume-

j& ))+* ; or uninfl. from the presence of the preventive 
of inflection, notwithstanding the existence of the motive 
for it, that preventive being resemblance (of the n.) to 
the p., pret., or imp., or its being a verbal n. (187) 
(R):] and its predicament is that its termination does 
not vary because of the variation of the ops. (IH). It is 
(1) permanent, vid. (a) what implies the sense of the 

p., like ^J [206], JZ> [below], and UUT [207]; (b) 
what resembles it, like gMS [below], ^*M , and the 
like : (2) accidental, vid. (a) the [nJ] pre. to the ^ of the

tive locations [128, 201] (MM). The cause of its unin- 
fected n ess is its relation to what has [prig. (AAz)] no 
declinability in any way, near or remote, [like the pret. vs., 
imp. of the 2nd per 8., and ps. 9 which are orig. so constitu- 
ted as to have no declinability, contrary to the uninfl. ns ., 
whose indeclinability is adventitious, not original (AAz),] 

through (1) implying its sense, like ^jif and «~*f [206] j 
(2) resembling it, like the [prons. (161) and] vague ns. 
[262]; (3) occurring in its place, like j£ [193] ; (4) 
conforming to what occurs in its place, like jt»» and

it, like the voc. pronounced with Damm [48] ; (6) being

by AnNlbigha (M) adhDhubySnl, At the time when I 
reproved hoariness for the passing away of youth, and 
said, Wkatt have I not yet become sober when hoariness 
is hindering (from q>ort)t (J). The cause of uninflec* 
tedness is restricted to resemblance to the p., according 
to IM, who mentions that the n. resembles the p. in (1) 
constitution, as when the n. is constituted of (a) one letter, 

like the «*> in cs^tyi [161] ; (b) two letters, like the U in 
lUjTf : (2) sense, vid. what resembles a p (a) existing, 
like L 5** [206], which is used to denote interrogation^ 
like the Hamza, and condition, like ^1 ; (b) non-existent, 

like CUD , because demonstration^ being a meaning, ought 
to have a p. constituted to indicate it [171], so that the 
dems. are uninfl. because of their resemblance to a sup* 
plied p. : (3) acting as a subst. for the v. and not being 
impressible by the op., like the verbal ns., as l^o [193], 
which is uninfl. because of its resemblance to the p. in 
governing and not being governed by anything else ; but 
this is based upon the opinion that the verbal ns. have 
no place in inflection [187] : (4) permanent need, like the 

conjunct n*., as ^jJI [176], which, always needing the 
conj. [177], resemble the p. in permanence of need [497] 
(IA). The [pre. (DM)] n. gains uninflectedness [from 
the post., when uninfl. (DM),] by pro thesis [111], when

the p. in needing the prop., like u^**- , of , and f*M 

[115] (IA). Uninflectedness upon quiescence is the 
general rule (M, I A), because it is lighter than the vowel 
(IA) : and deviation from it to the vowel is only for one 
of three causes, (1) to avoid [irregular (AAz)] concur- 

rence of two quiescents [663], as in 'V%*> ; (2) not to 

begin with a quiescent, literally or predicamentally, as 


in the two u£ s, that which is L q. j£* [509], and that 
which is a pron., [as in uC*jft , because it is in the pre- 
dicament of detachment, as being an objective comple- 
ment, without which the v. and ag. are complete (AAz)]; 
(3) [to indicate (AAz)] accidental uninflectedness, as in

to the vowel of the ag.i (2) of the 2nd pers. sing, (a) in

pers. sing, and for alleviation ; (b) in the fern, with Kasr.

They add f before the ( of the du. in L? and j of the 

j>/. [maw.] in ^ , in order that the du. may not be con- 
founded with the 2nd pers. sing. masc. when its Fatha is 
impleted because of unbinding, nor the/)/, with the 1st pers. 
sing, whose Damma is impleted : the ^ being the letter 
most suitable for addition, because the unsound letters 
are deemed heavy before the I and j ; while the f is the 
nearest of the sound letters to the unsound ones, because 
it is nasal and labial like the j , for which reason what 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 516 ) 
precedes it ia pronounced with Damm, like what precedes 
the j . Elision of the . of the pi. with quiescence of the 
* , if not immediately followed by a pron. } is commoner 
than retention of the ^ preceded by Damm, because the 
y at the end preceded by Damm is deemed heavy [721]; 
whereas, if the ^ of the pi. be followed immediately by a 

pron.j as Xj+*iy£> , the Damm and j must be restored, 
because, the [subsequent] pron. being through its attach- 
meot like one of the letters of the word, the j as it were 
does not occur at the end. The f of the pl. t when met 
by a quiescent after it, is pronounced with Damm, because 
it is restored to its o.f.; but Kasr of it is allowed, as will 

be shown [in the 2nd **>y* below]. A * doubled to 
correspond with the f and ) in the masc. is added for 
the [pi] fem., the ^ being chosen from its resemblance, 
as being nasal, to the f and j together, while all 3 are 
letters of augmentation [671] (R). A strange fact about the 
at; is tbat it is divested of allocution, [the allocution 
understood from the lJ being held sufficient (DM),] and 
is invariably sing, masc, [even though the party addressed 
by the expression containing it be du. masc. or fern., pi. 

masc, sing, fern , or pi. fern., as (DM)] in UC^^f , *£uf jf 
[560], uKi^f , and ^j^J ;f , since, if they said LA^iy f 
they would combine 2 allocutions [in one sentence (DM)]; 
whereas, when they abstain from combining them in 
f£*U* k » so that they do not say it, as they say U#U# 1$

and fG+V& k , notwithstanding that in the flU the allo- 
cution is adventitious because of the vocation, [not origi- 

nal (DM),] and that *C*U* k is an address to two [differ- 
ent parties], not to one, this is more fit [to be disallowed, 
because the allocution in it is original, not adventitious, 
And the parry addressed by it is one, not two (DM)], 

while **£*1U f^ [55] is allowable only because the la- 

menced is not really addressed (ML), but merely grieved 
over (DM). The [attached nom.] pron. of the 3rd per*, 
sing. masc. mdfem. is latent [165], because, since the 
exponent of the 3rd per*, is orig. a prior expression, con- 
trary to those of the 2nd and 3rd pers. r they mean the pron*. 
of the 3rd pers. to be shorter than those of the 2 others r. 
so that they begin in the 2 sings, with the extreme of 
abbreviation, vid. supplying without expressing anything ^ 
and restrict themselves in the du. masc. and Jem. to the 
!, which is the sign of dualizntion in every du.) and in 
the pi. masc. to the » r which is sometimes dispensed 
with by the aid of the Damma in poetic license, as.

is what ito duces Akh to say that the 3 in ^£y& is not

and prokib. J*£ V is that of J*£ for the 2nd per*,

from the oar. [428, 419, 603]. The [attached] torn, 
prons. are not made prominent in the eps. % i. e. act and 
pass, parts, and assimilate g>., because, their requirement 
of the ag. not being radical, but due to resemblance to.the 
&, the pron. of the ag. does not appear in them, as like- 
wise is the case with the verbal ns. and advs. [168, 165, 
187] : and also because, the I and j in the dus. and pis.

and tbe dus. and pis. of eps. being modelled upon the 
dus. and pis. of prims., the f becomes a sign of the du., 
and the y of the pi., so that it is impossible for the f 
and ) of the pron. to be conjoined with the du. and pL, 
lest two I s and two y s be combined, and therefore the 
2 prons. become covert, the t in the du. and the » in 
the/?/., the proof that the expressed I and y are not prons. 
being their convertibility [into g ] by the ops., as 

A/. / J / / ^ 

*# %L3 c^aI and ^M?.^ , whereas the ag. is not altered 
by the ops. prefixed to its op. ; while the ^ likewise

the pron. in the />/. masc, since it is the o.f.\ and, since 
the pron. is latent in the du. and pi., it is a fortiori latent 
in their sings. ; so that it is invariably latent in all [num-

( 511 ) 

founded with the />. ^f ; and therefore it is written 
with the I , because orthography is based upon [the 
forms of] pause and inception : but sometimes its ^ 
is paused upon quiescent, or its Fatha is made \ lain in 
pause by the 8 of silence [615]; and the f is retained 
in continuity also by the Bauu Tamlm as matter of 
choice, but by others only as a poetic license, as 

[I am the sword of the paternal kins/oik; wherefore 
know ye me praisewortliy, having mounted vpon the sum- 
mit (Jsh)]. The KK, however, hold that the f after the 
^ is part of the word itself ; but its mostly dropping off 
[in pronunciation] in continuity, with Fath and some- 
times quiescence of the ^ , and the alternation of the 8 
of silence with it in pause are proofs that it is aug. and 
intended to make the vowel plain in pause. [The final

is pronounced with Damm, either because ^sJ is a

is the j . The pron. in i*~>t to ^1 , according to the 

A* /* 

BB, is ^1 , its o. f. being Uf , which, according to them, 
is a pron. applicable to all the 2nd perss. and to the 1st 
pers. sing.) so that they begin with the 1st pers., and, 
though by analogy they ought to distinguish it by 
the \*> pronounced with Damm, as c^l , still, since the 
1st pers. is original, they make omission of the sign «

sign of it, and distinguish the 2nd per*, by up. smj [560] 


after ^1 , like the n. [ «l> ] in letter and plasticity* 

But Fr holds that o«M in its entirety is a n., the *u 

being part of the word itself * while some say that the 

nom. pron. is the plastic & that is an attached now., 

and that, when they mean it to be detached, they support 

it with ^1 in order that it may be independent, as some 

of the KK and IK hold that the plastic kJ in uSty is 

[an] attached [ace J], and that, when they mean it to be 

literally independent, in order that it may become de* 

tached, they make Of a support for it, so that the pron* 

* * 
is what follows <*f [162]; and I think this saying to be 

not far from right in both cases. The y and ^ in j* 

and ^ are, according to the BB, an original part of the 

word ; and, according to the KK, an impletion, the pron. 
being the 8 alone, on the evidence of the du. and p/., 
where you elide them : but the 1st is right, because the 
letter of impletion is not vocalized, nor even authorized 
except as a poetic license. The y and g are vooalized 
in order that the word, becoming independent by means 
of the Fatfra, may be fit to be a detached pron* } since, if 
it were not for the vowel, they would be as it were 
impletions, as the KK think ; for, when you mean the 
word not to be independent, you make the j and . j 

quiescent, as j&\ and ^1 [converted, as will be shown,

£ from the Easr: though the Band 'Ukaii and Eilsb 
allow elision of the conj., i. e. the ; and g , after the 
mobile as matter of choice, with retention of the Damma 

or Easra of the K, as **U* and &>, and also with 

quiescence of the 8 ; while others allow both, i. e. slurring 
and elision of the vowel, as a poetic license, not as 
matter of choice. But, if the 8 of the sing. mate, imme- 
diately follow a quiescent, whether a soft letter, as in 
*aI* , or any other, as in &U , the vowel is preferably 
slurred, i. e. the conj. is omitted, because, the 8 being a 
feint letter, [if the conj. were put,] 2 quiescents would 
as it were meet together ; while Ibn Kathlr conjoins 

h/f . -PA 

unrestrictedly, as J(&e , jgl* , and the like. Thus in 
the 8 of the sing. masc. after the Easra or [quiescent] 
^ there are with respect to its Damm, Easr, slurring, 
and conjunction 4 dials., Easr being the commonest, 
(1) Easr of the 8 , (a) not conjoined with a ^ , [as 6j 
and &£** J which is more frequent after the c than 
after the Easra, because in the 1st case [if the V were 
conjoined with a ^ ] there would be a quasi-concurrence 
of 2 quiescents ; (b) conjoined with a ^ , as j# 

and j^Gftk, which is commoner after the Easra than 

after the ^ f because of what we have just mentioned :

(b) without a ^ 9 as ft; and ft*U : while after the Kasra 

there is a 5th dial., vid. making the Kasr of the * to 
smack somewhat of Damma without conjunction. And, 
if a soft letter be elided before the 8 of the sing, masc, 

because of apocopation, as in Mji XXXIX. 9. He will 

approve it said ftl^Jj IV. J.15. And We will burn him, 

or pause [431], as in 6ii\i XXVII. 28. And cast thou it } 


the vowel of the 8 may be impleted from regard to the 
mobile literally before it, or slurred from regard to the 
quiescent accidentally elided before it ; or the K may be 
made quiescent by treating continuity like pause : with 
all of which pronunciations the Kur'an is read. The ¥ 
in the du. and 2 ph., (1) if preceded by a Fatha or 

Damma, is pronounced with Damm, as Ugf and *g*U* : 
(2) if preceded by an f , y , or souqd quiescent, is like- 
wise so pronounced ; except in what F transmits [above],

such as UgM , f$i* , U#y*l , and {Q>y*\ , because of 

the alliteration, and because the barrier is reckoned to

preceded by a Kasra or [quiescent] ^ , is pronounced 
(a) with Damm by those who say in the sing. j# and

its conj. : (2) if not paused upon, then, (a) if followed by

say Khi and S, it distinguishes the n. before it from the 
one after it by indicating that the latter is not a supple- 
ment [140] of the former, but is its enunc. (R) : and by 
the KK support (M, R), because it keeps what follows it 
from falling from the status of enunc^ as the support 
in the house keeps the roof from falling (R). The J

like o^yi fjflgvM is^V uCif XL 89. Verily thou art the 
mild, the director. The inch, ought to be det., because 


the distinctive imports corroboration [1 38], since ^j 
JtiM yfc means Zatrf himself is the slander; and the 
enunc. ought to be synarthrous, because, when it is so, 
it imports restriction, which, importing corroboration, is 
in keeping with the corroboration of the inch, by the 
distinctive : while the form of a detached nom. pron. 
agreeing with the inch, is put in order that it may be in 
the semblance of a 2nd inch, whose enunc. is what fol- 
lows it, the prop, being the enunc. of the 1st inch., so 
that by this means the synarthrous [enunc. after it] may 
be distinguishable from the ep., because the pron. is not 
qualified [147] ; but afterwards, since the object of put- 
ting the distinctive is to avert confusion of the enunc. 
after it with the ep., and this is the sense of the p., vid. 
to import a meaning in something else [497], it becomes 
a p., and is stripped of the quality of n., so that it keeps 
to a fixed shape, vid. that of the nom. pron., even if what 
Jbllows it alter from the nom. to the acc. } because the p. 
is aplastic; though it retains one plasticity that it had 
when it was a n., I e. its variation in number, gender and 
person, because it is not orig. a p. Then, greater latitude 
being taken in the distinctive, it is introduced where the 

Digitized by VjOOQlC

enunc. is similar to the synarthrous, vid. the J*Jf of 

superiority, which resembles the synarthrous in that 

its particular Izer is a ^., vid. ^ [355], united with it, 

as the particularizer of the synarthrous is a p. united 

with it, i. e. the J (R). The conditions of the pron. 

named distinctive and support are [thus] 6, (1) that what 
precedes it should be (a) an inch., actually or orig., as

(3) also id., vid. particularization, [i. e. restriction of the

followed by an appos., not being corroborated [135], nor 
coupled to [158], nor followed by a subst [154] : (4) it 
is governed only by inchoation or one of its annullers : 
(5) it is invariably sing., not being dualized or pluralized, 
even if it be expounded by 2 or more stories (ML). The 
BB hold that both terms of the expos, prop, must be ex- 
pressed, because, it being expos., its own 2 terms ought 
to be independent of exponent. The exponent, when 
the annullers of the inch, are not prefixed to the pron., 
must be a nominal prop., [as CXII. 1.]; but, when they 
are prefixed to it, may be verbal also, as XXII. 45. (K). 
The prop, occurring as enunc or pred. to the pron. of the 
case must be enunciatory, whatever is transmitted to 
the contrary being paraphrased, except the pred. of the 


contracted ^ , which may be a precatory prop., as in 
the reading of XXIV. 9. [34, 525] (ML).

(shall attain mine object) ( AAz)] ; while authorities differ 
as to [the explanation of] that (M). S and the majority 
say that 9 J is a, prep. [513], peculiar to the pron., as 

%L [501] and the ^J [509] are peculiar to the explicit 
n., and not depending upon any thing [498}; and that 
the position of its gen. is that of a nom. by inchoation, 
the enunc. being suppressed [29, 574] : while Akh says 

that the pron. is an inch., and yy not a prep., but that 
they substitute the gen. pron. for the nom., as they do 

the converse, since they say Utf ^1 Vj e^Jtf U| U 
i am not like thee, nor art thou like me [509] ; whereas 
substitution occurs only in the case of the detached 
prons.y [a refutation of Akh's saying (DM),] because of 
their resemblance t(* explicit ns. in their independence. 

On IuJ [in* some MSS ^ill'c (170) (DM),] &c. 

[459, 462], there are 3 opinions :— (1) S says that ^s, 
is treated like JjJ in governing the sub. in the ace. and 
jpred. in the nom. [516], as j*J is treated like it in having 


its pred. conjoined with ^ [536] : (2) Akh says that it 

continues to govern like AS [459] ; but that the ace. 
pron. is borrowed in place of the nom. pron. : which is 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 557 ) 

refuted by two matters, (a) that substitution of one prvn~ 
for another is authorized only in the case of the detached 

[pron.], as iJf u^>tf Uf U , while in £fl j#yi ~>i I* 

[129] the u5 is an etymological subsL [682] for the & f 
[being a case of conversion (DM),] not a case of substi- 
tution of one pron. for another, as IM thinks; (b) that 
the pred. appears governed in the nom. in

[by Sakhr Ibn Al'Abbud alKhidriml, Then said I, May 
be it is the fire of Kcts; and perhaps she will complain y 
and I shall come towards her, and visit her (Jsh)] : 
(3) Mb and F say that it continues to govern like ^JS * r 
but that, the sentence being transposed, [what ought to 
be (DM)] the sub. is made pred., and conversely, [the ^ 

in ffS ^jl ^L"** being its prepos. pred., and f><f\ ^f its 
postpos. sub. (DM)] : which is refiited by its entailing in 
such as 2)\ lx>\ U [above] restriction [of the expression 
(DM)] to a v. and its ace, [while the nom., vid.its post- 
pos. sub., is suppressed (DM)] ; but they may reply that 
the ace. here is a nom. in sense, since their assertion ia 
that the inflection is transposed, while the sense is. 

§ 170. The ^ of protection, named also the ^ of 

support, is affixed before the £ of the 1st pers*, (1) when 

governed in the ace, by (a) the v., whether plastic, a*

ciency [187] and <*H O-l— .1 [609] (ML). The ^ of 

protection is introduced into the v. to protect it from the 
Kasr, because what precedes the ^ of the 1st pers. must 
be pronounced with Kasr ; whereas, since they debar the 
v. from the gen. [404], and the Kasra is the original sign of 
the gen. [16], they dislike that what is sometimes the sign 
of the gen. should be found in the v. : while its introduction 

in such as ^Ub*' and ^t^H *s either for the sake of 
uniformity, or because the Kasr would be supplied upon 
the 1 and g , if it were not for the * , as in ^t*a* and 
^£ ; and its introduction with the ^ of inflection, as 
^jO^ > the e> af corroboration, as J+^S , and the 
attached «am» prow., as ^^y^ and ^Vj^. , is allowa- 

ble because the ^ s of inflection and corroboration and

udder debarred from milk, cut off, bring me to her dwell* 
ingt (EM)], or not. The place of the ^ of protection 
fnay be supplied by the ^ of inflection, contrary to the 
^j of the pron. and the two ^ s of corroboration, although 
combination of two likes is realized in the case of all, 
because, the ^ of inflection having no meaning, like the 
^ of protection, each of them is for a lit. matter, contrary 
to the ^ of the pron. and the two ^s of corroboration, 
this is according to the opinion of those who, like Ja, 
hold the elided to be the ^ of protection, because the 
heaviness comes from it, not from the - of inflection ; 
Whereas according to the saying of S, that the elided is 
the ^ of inflection, because it is exposed to elision in the 
upoc. and subj. and has no meaning, the cause of the non- 
elision of the ^ of the pfon. and two ^s of corrobora- 
tion is obvious, since they are not exposed to elision and 
have a meaning. Elision of the ^ of protection with the 
^ of the pron. occurs, however, by poetic license, as 

[by <Amr Ibn Ma'dikarib azZubaidi, Thou seest it (the 
hair of the head) like wormwood steeped in musk, vexing

Iht women rummaging for lice when they rummage 
me for lice, orig. JLUli (Jsh)], where the elided, may 

not be the ^ of the pron., since the ag. is not suppressed. 
Three methods are allowable with the ^ of inflection, 
elision of one * , incorporation of the ^ of inflection * 
into the ^ of protection, and expression of both without 
incorporation ; and VI. 80. [405] is read according to 
all three. Expression of the ^ with j-*J is better, as 

£M U^j 4aU [164] ; but ^g-d is allowable, as wfco 61

assimilation to ^ ; but ^l*** is more frequent (R). 
It is disputed whether the ^ of protection be inseparable 
from the J*M of wonder or not, as £M ^y^f I* [477] or 
^cjSif U ; but the correct opinion is that it is inseparable 
(IA). The ^ may be affixed to verbal ns., because they 
convey the sense of the v. ; or omitted, because they are 
not orig-. w. [187]. The ^ may be affixed to ^f , ^f , 
JCI , and ^S , because they resemble the v. [516] ; or 
elided, because the affixion is due to the resemblance, and 
is not original, and because of the combination of likes, 

together with the frequency of usage (R). JjJ is cor- 
rectly denuded of the ^j, as XL. 38. [411] j and expres-

uninfl. (IY, R, Sh), upon quiescence, like f3 and ^3 ; 
Fath, like fJ [175], as ji^lM fJ UAIjf^ XXVI. 64. 
^nd We mode <Ae otfAer* draw wear JAere; Kasr,

that some of the Arabs say (Sh) : (1) according to most 
(R), because they imply the sense of the p. (IY, R), 
vid. demonstration : for, this being a meaning, like interro- 
gation, a p. ought to be constituted to indicate it [159], 
because their custom current in the case of every meaning 
introduced into the sentence or into words after their 
formation is that a p. should be constituted to indicate 

$Ax $ *t h , 

it, like the \ps. of] interrogation in *t) i^t^l and J.JD

which c^a* , J*J , ^m , ^JS , U> , the 4-5 , etc, are con- 
stituted ; or that what follows the course of the p. in 
needing something else should be constituted to denote 
it, like the inflection indicative of the various meanings 
the * of relation, and the alteration of the formation 

alone, as in &;* and lJ^ and iyf and y~$ , or with 
the addition of a letter, as in the dim. and some broken

pis. : and, since demonstration is a meaning introduced

into words like J*)M and j-yiM in Ja.yf tiia> This 

man and ^*;*M i-£'3 7%«< horse, and no />. has been 
constituted to indicate it, the dems. become like impliers 
of the sense of the p. (R): (2) as some say, because 
the dem. resembles the pron. : for you demonstrate by 
the former what is in your presence so long as it remains 
present, and, when it is absent, that n. quits it, whereas 
[explicit] ns. are so constituted as to be inseparable from 
their denominates ; and, since this n. is separable from 
what it is constituted for, it becomes like the pron., which, 
being used as a n. when an explicit n. precedes [160], 
and not having been a n. for it before that, is a n. for the 
denominate in one state, and not in another : so that, since 
the pron. must be uninfl. [161], the vague [262] must 
likewise be uninfl. (IY): (3) as is said, because the consti- 

4 • • 

tution of some dems. } as 13 , G , ^3 , and J , is [6t7.,] 

like that of ps. ; while the remainder, as sVy\ and lty , 

are made to accord with them; (4) as is said, because 
they need the context that removes their vagueness, vid. 
either sensible demonstration or qualification [148], as 

J^jM tii«> This man, as the p. needs something else 
[497]. The majority say that the du. is uninfl., because 
the cause of uninflectedness exists in it, as in the sing. 
and pi ; and that ^13 is a coined form, not constructed 
upon a sing., ^13 being a form for the nam., and ^3 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 569 ) 

for the ace. and gen.: but some say that it is infl. f 
because its termination varies with the variation of the 
ops., while the assertion that each of them is a fresh 
form is contrary to the apparent [case]. And the dispute 

• 25 • A /«/ y 

on ^'kitfl and ^tiAH [176) is the same as on ^to and

^o (R). The dems. ^3 and ^Jj and the conjuncts

f in the nom. and with the g preceded by Fath in the 

• AS y sSw •

not really dus., because the only dels, that may be

But .!,S, Ji, JS&, and JsW [176] occur in the 

three cases; and to this is attributed XX. 66. [above] 
(R). These ns. are said to be vague [262] because you 
demonstrate by them everything that is in your pre- 
sence, and sometimes there are several things in your 
presence, so that they confuse the person addressed, who 
does not know which of them you demonstrate ; and 
therefore these ns., being vague, are for that reason in- 
variably explained by the ep. upon the occasion of con- 
fusion (IY). 

§ 172. The p. [ ±S (IY, Sh, Jm)] of allocution 
[560] is affixed to them (M, IH, Sh), to give warning of

a pron., as in uX»U£, because that would necessarily 
involve its being governed in the gen. by prothesis, which 
is not allowable, because the dems. are not pre., since 

they are invariably del. [112] (Sh). The lS of cJ0J

allocution ; so that it is a p. indicating a meaning, but

holding that there is no medium between the near and

[the masc. (IY)] L-Cto [in importing distance (Jra)] are 

[the fern. (M, R)] uOG (M, IH) from J, in which 
they elide the ^ because of its quiescence and the 
quiescence of the J after it (IY), uCLJ, uQj with 

Fatfc of the uu by elision of the f of G (R), and i_CJG

others than Mb say that the reduplication is a compensa- 

tion for the elided I of the sing. [ u*f & and i^G ] :

and this is more likely, because they say ^toiJI and 
^UUJI with the ^ doubled as a compensation for the 
elided ^ [176] ; while, if the reduplication were a com- 
pensation for the J , ^^ with to [174] would not be 
said, as uXJoto is not said i so that, according to others 
than Mb and his followers, the distant and intermediate 
have one expression in the du. (R). The J must be 
omitted in (1) the <fem. of the du., as lXM3 and uXiC j 
(2) the dem. of the pi in the dial, of those who prolong it, as 
ljCJJ J ; whereas, if you abbreviate, you say lJVjI or 
ujOlfjl : (3) every tfem» preceded by the premonitory

asserts that omission of the J in all is the dial, of

denote the distant and intermediate (R).

dualized, two f s, the f of f ift and the \ of dualization,

because of the concurrence of two quiescents ; and there- 
fore those who assume the elided to be the \ of loft, 
and the remaining one to be the J of dualization, convert 
the latter into g in the ace. and gen. [16]; but those

it is established that the conj. is determinative, the f 
and J in such conjuncts as they are prefixed to are not 
determinative also, because the n. does not become det. 
for two different reasons : (c) the f and J are added for 

a sort of rectification of the form, because ^JJf and 

such of its sisters as contain a J are introduced only as 
connectives to the qualification oidets. by props. (178) : 
for props, are indet. (144), and the indet is not an ep. 
of the det. (146); while it is impossible to prefix the J 
of determination to the prop., because this J is one of 
the peculiarities of ns. (2), whereas the prop, is not pecu- 
liar to ns. } but is nominal and verbal: so that they then 

put ^oJf , and make the prop, a conj. to ^oJf , which 
is the ep. in form, though the object is the prop.; and 
the form of ^ciM before the prefixion of the f and J 
not being in accordance with the form of the eps. of

them for the sake of uniformity ; or because they need a 

conj. and ret. [177] in their completeness as a part [of the 

prop.], as the p. needs something else in its quality of part 

[497]. The inflection ought to rest upon the conjunct 

[177], because it is the [word] intended by the speech, 

the conj. being put only to explain it ; and the proof is the 

appearance of the inflection in the conjunct ^} , and 

/#/ •* ' 

similarly in ^**W and ^^l according to those who say 

that they are infl. [171]. And some say that the conj. 
is infl. with the inflection of the conjunct, because they 
believe it to be the ep. of the conjunct, by reason of its 
explaining the latter, like the props, occurring as eps. of 
indets. [1, 144] : but this of no account, because the con- 
juncts are dets. [262] by common consent, and props, do- 
not occur as eps. of dets. j and the majority hold that the 
cvnj. has no place in inflection [1], since it is not replace- 
able by the single term, like [the prop, that occurs in 
the place of] the ep. 9 emmc., d. s. } and post, [n.] (R). 
It has reached me that one grammarian used to instruct 
his pupils to say that the conjunct and its conj. were ii* 
such and such a position, arguing that they were like> 
one word ; but the truth is what I have premised, [vicL 
that the conj. has no place, and the conjunct has a place,, 
but that their aggregate is not said to have, or not to have 
a place (DM),] as is proved by the appearance of the 
inflection in the conjunct itself, as in XLI. 2& [above],.

The conj. is one of four things, (1) the 0. and ag., as

single term, but only a prop. [67,498] (IY). The conj. 
must be an enunciatory prop., because the purport of the 
conj. must be a predicament whose occurrence is known 
to the person addressed before the state of address [178 J, 
whereas the purport of the originative and requisitive

ing with what it is prefixed to det., like the p. with what 
it is prefixed to, should be prefixed to the semblance of 
the v., they transform the v. into the semblance of the n. 9 
the act. v. into the semblance of the act. part, and the 
pass. v. into the semblance of the pass, part., because the

to be upon the conjunct [176]; but, since the n. J is in

Abstain thou {from everything) : whatever (thou dost I

even if it were correctly affirmable elsewhere, because

they add in the sing. masc. the j , I , and ^ instead of the 
vowels, because, if they imitated the vowels of the indet. 
as they are, the word would be vocalized in pause, which 
is not allowable ; so that instead of the vowels they 
express quiescent consonants resembling them, and put 
before the consonants vowels akin to them : this is the 
opinion of Mb ; but Sf says that they express the vowels 
in *• for imitation of the inflection, as in ^f [185], and 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 635 ) 

that, since the state is that of pause, and the final of 
the word paused upon is quiescent, they then implete the 
vowels, so that the consonants are engendered : and 
both the sayings are possible : (b) expression of the 
letters of prolongation indicative of the inflection not 

A/ • 

being possible in *JU , since the * of femininization in 

pause is only quiescent, they content themselves with 

imitating the sign of the fern., and omit to imitate 

a • • 

the inflection ; and they treat c^lx* like its sing, in 
omitting to imitate its inflection, although it would be 
possible by putting the letters of prolongation : (c) the 

A /A/ A A/A/ 

quiescence of the [1st] ^ in ^lii* and vS y£ii* is a warn- 
ing that the & denotes femininization not of the word 
that it is affixed to, but of another word ; for which rea- 
son in what precedes it they do not keep to the mobility 
inseparable from what precedes the X of femininization: 
and the . in the sing, is sometimes made quiescent, as 

A A / 

«JU ; though it is oftener mobilized, because they add 
the 5 to indicate that the question is about a fern., and 
the fact that the 5 is preceded by Fath and converted 
into 5 in pause is more indicative uf its denoting femini-

pi. of the proper name is disputed, the allower looking 
to its sing., and the disallower to the cessation of 
the quality of proper name on account of the dualization 
and pluralization [171]: (/) when what follows ^

says that the op, of the conjunct ^t must be future ; 
and, according to the KK, its op. must also precede it : 
but the BB disagree with them in both cases, from the 

lack of proof in both assertions. 


§ 185. When you interrogate with ^f about a 

mentioned indet, (1) you may imitate in ^f the inflec- 
tion [of that indet] and the signs of the du., 

A • 

pl., and fern., as in ^+ [183], except that you do 
not affix the letters of prolongation to the sing, 
masc.y but in continuity inflect it with the vowels, 

as J* k &1 , J& •* W i and J& ** S* > and in P ause 

make its ^ quiescent in the nom. and gen., and convert 

the Tanwln into f in the ace. [640], because ^f is infl.x (a) 

A • 

thus two conditions of imitation with ^ are dropped in the 

it tt 

case of 3! , vid. reason and pause, reason because 3I is in 

its original constitution applicable to the rational and 

a* it 

irrational, contrary to ^ [182] ; and pause because, ^ 

being %nfl. % the imitation of the inflection is not disap- 


Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 647 ) 

proved upon it either in continuity or in pause, whereas, 

^ being uninfl^ they try to keep it away from inflection, 
and therefore express the signs only in a state where 
there is mostly no inflection or Tanwln of declinability 
upon the word, vid. the state of pause, where the word 
is divested of the sign of the nom. and gen. and of the 
Tanwln : (2) you may restrict yourself in continuity to 

w* it 52 ml 

inflecting ^f in the sing., saying ^1 , ty , and ^gf in 
the sing., du., and pl. y masc. and Jem. The vowels 

affixed to ^1 in the state of imitation are explained as 
being its inflection, in which case it is an inch, whose 
enunc. is suppressed, an obj. whose v. is suppressed, or 
a gen. whose prep, is understood : but this is weak, 
because subaudition of the prep, is rare, extraordinary 

[515], while dualization and pluralization of ^J without 
imitation are also of weak authority [176] ; and it should 
rather be said, as in the case of £* [183], that these 

signs are imitative alliterations to the speaker's expres- 

a • i i 

sion, and that the place of both [ ^* and ^f ] is that 

• * A / 

of a nom. by inchoation, the full phrase being y& #* 

• * it *s s * 5* 

Who (is he) f and y& ^1 , i. e. y& J^j ^f What (man

§ 187. The verbal n. is that [n. ( Jm)] which is in

not impressible by the ops. [159], nor superfluous (A,

not needed (R): (3) as before said [159], because of 
their resemblance to the p. in acting as a substitute for 
the v. and not being impressible [by the op.] (IA). 
Accordiug to the correct opinion (Fk), the meaning of 
the term " verbal ns" is that (IY) they are applied to 
indicate verbal expressions (IY, Fk), as ns. indicate 

their denominates ; so that %sA&& is a n. indicating the 

expression «>*i , and similarly the rest. The object of 
using them is abbreviation and abridgment and a sort 
of intensiveness ; and, were it not for that, the vs. 
denoted by these ns. would be more fit for their posi- 
tion. The manner of the abridgment in them is that 
they occur uniform for all genders and numbers, as 

o*\ b 6*0 or oifc or ^W) or ^fjifc or &)*l) or 

I , A ' ' ' ' A, 

e^tJjto ; and, as for the intensiveness, 6*c Hush t is 

' A #A# 

more intensive in meaning than vs~&»f Be silent, and 
similarly the rest. As for their indicating what -vs. 
indicate, vid. command, prohibition, and the particular 
time, this meaning is imported only from what is indicated 

A s 

by them, not from themselves (IY) : so that *** [is a n. 

which (YS)] indicates [the expression (YS)] is^xlf (IY, 
YS), while the command is understood from the denomi- 

A SAS * /A • 

nate, vid. v**&»! ; and ct>t$*fc is a »,, the denominate of 

which is another expression, vid. d*; , so that the time 
is known from the denominate, not from the n. (IY). 
But R says [below] that this is of no account : and the 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 655 ) 

verbal n. is variously said (1) to indicate the inf. n., in 
which case a distinction between the verbal n. and inf. n. 
is needed, since the verbal n. is uninfl., and the inf. n. 
inft. ; (2) to indicate the accident and time that the v. indi- 
cates [402], except that the v. indicates time by the form, 
and the verbal n. by application ; (3) to be really a v. 
( YS). What induces the GG to say that these words and 
their likes are not w., notwithstanding that they convey 
the sense of vs., is a lit. matter, vid. that their forms are 
different from those of vs., that they are not conju gable 
like vs.j that the J [2] is prefixed to some of them 

[200] and the Tan win affixed to others [198], and that 
some of them are obviously advs. and others preps. 
and gens. [199]. As for their o.fs., and what they are

(Th). By analogy the verbal n. that is orig. a prep, and 
g-ew., as uCaI! and uXxb , should not be called a verbal 

n., because we call an expression like &<o and j^ a w. 
from regard to its o./, whereas the prep, and gen. are 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 658 ) 

not a n. ; but they apply this name universally to every 
expression occasionally transferred to the meaning of 

the 0., so that s^^ in such as 3***^ *r*^ [below] 
may be called a verbal n. (R). The correct opinion is 
that the verbal n. has no place in inflection [159, 199] 
(Fk). Some assert that the verbal ns. are nom. in 

place, as inchs. having no enunc., as in ^^S ^ 

[24] : but this is of no account, because J&, though it 

resembles the r., has the meaning of the n. 9 i. e. ^ y$ , 
so that it may be an inch., contrary to the verbal n., in 
which the quality of n. has no meaning; and no regard 
is paid to the letter, since £*w in £lf £*w , though 
literally a v. } is an i/icA., because it has the meaning of 
the n. [2]. The verbal n. then is like the ^S of uflj 

[172], and like the distinctive [166] according to those 
who say that it is a p. : each of these two had a place 
in inflection, because of their being ns. ; but, since they 
have been transferred to the meaning of the p.> they do 
not retain that [place], because the p. has no inflection : 
and similarly the verbal n. had orig. a place in inflec- 
tion ; but, since it has been transferred to the meaning 
of the v., and the v. has orig. no place in inflection, it 
also does not retain a place in inflection. Nor is what 
some mention, vid. that the verbal ns. are aec. in posi- 
tion as inf. ns., of any account, since, if they were so, 
the vs. would be supplied before them [41], so that they 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 659 ) 
would not act as substitutes for the v., and therefore 
would not be uninfl. : nor do we say that uX*Uf i. q. 
r o£? [199] is governed in the ace. by a supplied v. [498], 
but the sign of the ace. in it becomes like the Fath of 

$'A / /A// /A/ 

the lJ in £**- ; nor that uXUs and i*OJI , when verbal 
ns. y are />rej0$. dependent upon a supplied [v.] ; but the 
pre. and pos/. in the 1st, and the prep, and gen. in the 
2nd, become like one word. Thus the inf. n. and ej. y 

* A /A/ #55/ 

when verbal ns. y become like J-^l and &*? [4] when 
proper names of a person; and the pre. and post, and 

r Jk**» *A/ 

the />rqp. and #en., when verbal n*., become like &*M j** 

55 s /£$/ 

and ^ ***G when proper names: so that they are 
transferred from their original meanings to the meaning 
of the v. in the same way as proper names are trans- 
ferred. And what some say [above], vid. that &* e.g. 

A # A* 

is a n* denoting the expression <juX~f , which is indi- 

A • 

cative of the meaning of the v., so that 6*c is a proper 
name for the expression of the v. y not for its meaning, 
is of no account, since the pure Arab sometimes says 

Ay A S A# 

&* notwithstanding that the expression c^X»f does not 
occur to his mind, and perhaps has never been heard 
by him at all ; while, if you said that it was a w. denot-

163, 165], the prominence of which in any of them 

proves it to be a v., and not one of them, like J*> [189] 

and uuUb [below]. The affixion of the i*S of allocution 
[163, 560] and of the Tanwln [198, 608] is not regular 
in all these n$., but is restricted to hearsay. When 
the i*S is attached to these ns. y then, (1) if it be attached 
to what is orig. an adv. or prep., it is a n. governed in 

the gen. from regard to its o.f, as in uC*L| and ljCJI 
[199] j (2) if it be attached to what occurs both as a 

Ay • As* s/t, 

pre. inf. n. and as a verbal n., as ^j j*>^ and (^ 
[188], it may be either a n. governed in the gen. from 
regard to the n/s being an inf. n. pre. to its ag. 7 or a/?, 
of allocution from regard to the n.'s being a verbal n. %

as in l.^; iJ±i)) [161, 188, 560] ; (3) if it may not be 

post., it is a p. of allocution, as in u^Ub [190], since 

A/ S 

i±j) la> does not occur (R). As R says (Sn) f according 

to the majority (R), the Tan win affixed to some of these 
ns. denotes indeterminateness [608], not of the v. signi- 
fied by that n. pronounced with Tan win, since the v. is 
neither det. nor indet., but of the inf. n. signified by that 
n. before it became a verbal n., [because the verbal n. 
pronounced with Tanwln is either an inf. n. or an ej. 
firstly substituted for the 172/. n. and secondly transferred 

to the cat. of the verbal w., so that l<c means U Uj£~ : 
and therefore the verbal n. divested of Tanwln, out of 
those that Tanwln is affixed to, is like the del. (R),] so 

that fco means ^^m J f %»jg*Jf %&>j£*Jf ^X-l Be silent 
with the known, specified silence ; [and, specification of 
the inf. n. being by specification of its reg., i. e. the 
story that silence is kept from, this means ta^£~J| J*if 
*£*J| L^oaJI f«ia> ** Keep silence from this specified 
story (R)] ; and accordingly it is allowable for the 
person addressed not to keep silence from something else 
than the story indicated ; [and similarly &# means Abstain 
from this thing, and &>f means Tell the known story, the 
determination in the inf. n. being reducible to determina- 
tion of its reg. (R) :] and [the indeterminateness is

similar, so that (R)] 6*0 means GjC* 4&"*£~f, i.e. Keep 

unrestricted silence, {applicable to every silence suppos- 
able (R),]/rom whatever story it be (R, Sn), since there 
is no specification in it (Sn) : and, according to them, 
omission of the Tanwln is not evidence of determination 
in all the verbal ns. [198], but only in such as the 
Tanwln of indeterminateness is affixed to (R). From 
this it follows that the verbal ns. in the state of determi- 

nation belong to the class of n. made det by the Jf 
denoting knowledge [599], which is plainer than the 
saying of some that they then belong to the class of n % 

made det. by the Jf denoting genus, and than the 
saying of others that they then belong to the class of 
generic proper name [198] (Sn). But, according to ISk 
and Jh, its affixion to such of them as it is affixed to is 
evidence of their being continuous with what follows 
them, and its suppression is evidence of pause upon

affixed to is continuous with what follows it, not paused 
upon [609, 640], being divested of the meaning of declin-

for affinity to the I and Fatha before it (Sh). The inf. 
ns, and eps. are uninfl. by common consent, because 
of their resemblance to the imp. jUi [159] in measure 
aad intensiveness [193]. The generic proper names 

Digitized by VjOOQlC

ought to be infl., because the uninfl. word, when used 
as a [proper] name for something other than its form, 

must be infl., as when a person is named *jj ; [and may 

not be imitated, as when it is used as a (proper) name 
for the form (191;, because in the former case you do 
not observe its original meaning, on account of which 
it is orig. uninfl., but totally exclude it therefrom, 
whereas, when you make it a (proper) name for the form, 
you do observe its meaning in some respect, since the 

#/A/s # As S 6 

meaning of £* y* u*^<qA3 A is J , whose meaning is 

verification, governs the nom. and ace. (R on the proper 
name)] : but they are uninfl. because the generic proper 
names [7] are [only] lit. proper names, [which have tho 
predicament of proper names in letter, such as diptote 

declension, anarthrousness, and prefixion of ^f and J , 

as in the surnames of human beings, and occur as is. 8 , 
and are qualified by dels., but notwithstanding all this 
are applicable to the indet. (R on the proper name)] ; 
so that the sense of qualification remains in all of them 
[193], since they are prevalent quals. (R). As for the 
[personal (R)J proper names [of ferns., they have 3 dial, 
vars. (Sh):] (1) according to the people of AlHijaz, they 
are uninfl. (R, Sh) upon Kasr, unrestrictedly, [i. e.

(Sh), by Lujaim Ibn Sa'b, When Hadhftm (the wife of 
the poet) says a saying, then believe ye her: for verily 
the true saying is what Hadham hoe said (Jgh) : their 
making these names uninfl. is contrary to analogy, since 
qualification has no meaning in them, so that the unin* 
flectedness belonging to them in the state of qualification 
might be observed ; but, seeing that there is no contra- 
diction between qualification and the quality of proper 
name as respects the sense, they make them uninfl. like 
the quals., although they are coined [193], not transfer- 
red from quals., in order to treat them like the proper 
name transferred from the qual.> because it is more 
numerous than the other (R) : (2) according to a few of 
the Banu Tamlm, they are infl. as diptotes (B, Sh), un- 
restrictedly (Sh), in conformity with analogy, being infl. 
because denuded of the sense of qualification, and diptote 
because of the quality of proper name and femininization 
in them [18] (R) : (3) according to most of them [and to 
their chaste speakers (R)], they are uninfl. [upon Kasr

infl., governed in the ace. like US«* [41], meaning UT,

declension,] as ^ ^f Desist from troubling us; or a 
verbal n. uninfl., in which case the Tanwln is [the 
Tanwln of indeterminateness,] like that which is in 6*0

ns. as are pronounced with Fath [of the final] admits of 
the two alternatives, as f J*j; [188], U#u* [191], and

and charges Dhu-rRumma with error in saying ItiSj 

^5 Ui£ [187] (IY, R) ; and IS says that he intends 
Tanwln, since his meaning is Tell a story, whatever story 
it be, about Umm Salim, but that he omits it by poetic 
license (R). - The Tanwln affixed to these ejs. only dis- 
tinguishes between the det. and indet. [608], not being 

found in a det. at all ; and only follows the vowels of 

uninflectedness, not being like the Tanwln of Jgj [and 

J*>)], which follows the vowels of inflection in the det. 
and indet. (IY). What IM mentions [above] is the well- 
known opinion ; but some hold that all the verbal ns. f 
with or without Tanwln, are det. with the determination 
of the generic proper name [187] (A).

§ 200. The ejaculatory n. is what is applied to (1) the 
address of the irrational, or of what is in the predicament 
of the irrational, such as the young of human beings; 
(2) the imitation of sounds : so [says IM] in the CE 
(A). The expressions that the GG name ejs. are of three 
kinds, (1) imitations of sounds proceeding from (a) dumb 
animals, like JjU [below] ; (b) inanimate substances, 

A / 

alike V* [below] : (2) sounds uttered from the mouths 
of human beings, and naturally indicative of meanings in 

Ml * MJ $ 

their minds, like of and yjZ ; for he that is disgusted at 

anything utters from bis breast a sound [ Ugh /] resem* 


bling the expression cJl , and from him that spits upon a 

disgusting thing proceeds a sound resembling Uu : (3) 
cries wherewith animals are cried to when something is 

• A * 

required from them, (a) coming, like ul>^; (b) going, 

like Ufc ; (c) some other matter y like U* for drinking : but 
I see nothing to prevent our hazarding the conjecture 
that these cries, with which the brutes are cried to, are 
verbal ns. i. q. the imp., as some hold ; because God has 
made the brutes like rational beings in understanding 
what is required from them. The three kinds are named 
ejs. because they are orig. simple or disconnected sounds, 
not words indicative of meanings. Afterwards, being 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 714 ) 

wanted for use in the middle of the sentence, they are 
treated like words ; and co-ordinated with the noblest of 
words, i. e» ns., the better to indicate their inclusion 
among the apparent kinds of words : so that the Tan win 

is affixed to some of them, as JJl* and c-if [198]; Jl is 

prefixed to some [187], vid. when the expression, not 

the meaning j of thee/, is intended, as iUf ^0 [123] and 
snj^U ***) Uf [below] ; some are made to mean i. q. inf. 


* * mi ****** 

n$., as uXJ o! , i. e. l-*J WMjf ; and some are governed in 

* * * * 

the ace. like inf. ns., as utf tolj, i. e. t**!* [198]: and 

' * 
what some GG say, vld. that the Tanwln of JU [below] 

denotes indeterminateness [198], is of no account, since 
determinateness and indeterminateness have no meaning 

[187] in it ; nor is there anything to prevent your saying 


the like of this about such as &* and Jbt , because such 
as &** is orig. an ej.\ and then we shall be relieved from 

the difficulty of explaining the Tan win in the two pre- 
ceding ways [187] (R). The ejaculatory ns. are [all 
(I A)] uninfl. (R, I A), because they are orig. simple 
sounds not entitled to construction, which is the requirer 
of inflection [159]; or because some of them are consti- 
tuted like ps. 9 i. e. of 2 letters, as is said (R); [or] be- 
cause they resemble the verbal ns. (IA). When they 
occur constructed, they may be infl. : Jahm Ibn

little or no plasticity [64], and aplasticity is akin to un~ 
inflectedness, since the meaning of the latter is inflec-

the three times is imported : (a) that is stipulated for 
the sake of the affinity between the pre. and post, in indi* 
eating unrestricted time, even if the two times be different, 
this affinity being needed because prefixion to the prop, id 
not in accordance with the o. /., since the post, in reality 
is the inf. n. implied by the prop., not the prop, itself J 
and, according to this, a. n. of place is ordinarily not pre, 
to a prop, f 124], because one of the places is not specific 
cally imported from the prop*, as one of the times is. 
The general rule is that the n. of time should be pre, to 
the verbal [prop*], because the v. indicates one of the 
times by application [402] ; and therefore the n* of time 
is pre. to the verbal more often than to the nominal 
[prop.] : but time is imported from the nominal post*

n. of time be not an adv. to the inf. n., but be either

indicated by the drift of the sentence, it is not good that 
a Tanwln should be substituted for them affixed to these 

advs., as it is substituted in J/, j**J, and iM [128]. 

For, JT and its sisters being inseparable from prothesis 
in sense [115], the suppression of the post, is inferred 
from the sense ; and, that suppressed being specified by 
the circumstantial evidence obtained from the drift of the 
sentence, what is meant becomes complete, as in XXI.

( 741 ) 

to suppress the post, and substitute the Tanwin of ti*a. 
for it, i.e. udo ***. at the time (of that), Uxa. would not 
appear to be used in that sense, but the Tan win in it 
would appear to denote [declinability and] indetermi- 
nateness ; [for I see nothing to prevent one Tanwin from 
denoting declinability and indeterminateness together, 
since many a p. imports two meanings, so that the Tanwin 
%m J^j imports indeterminateness also, but, when you 
use the n. as a name, denotes pure declinability (R on 
the Tanwin )]. Since, then, they fear that the Tanwin 
of compensation in U j* , Ua*. 9 and &U# should be con- 
founded with the Tanwin of declinability and indetermi- 
nateness, they effect the indication of the suppressed 
props, orig. post to those advs. by putting as a total 


subst for those advs. an adv. [of ] inseparable from pre- 
fixion to props., light in expression, applicable to all 
sorts of ns. of time, &U , ^. , r ^ , &J f e te, and ac- 
customed to suppression of the prop*, pos/. to it, together 
with substitution of Tanwin for them, as in j}ufl of i*JU 

[204]. Thus of is put after those advs. as a [total] subst. 

for them, together with the Tanwin of compensation, in 

order that the Tanwin may be as it were existent in the 

ant. advs., because the total subst. [150], being not only 

ideally put into the place of the ant. [151], but unre- 


Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 7*2 ) 
strictedly applicable to what the ant. is applicable to, is as 
it were the ant. ; and 31 is pronounced with Easr of the 3 
because of the concurrence of the two quiescents [608], 
this vowel [664] being necessary in order that 31 may be 

like a decl. n. governed in the gen., post, to the 1st adv. % 
so that the suppression of the post, from the 1st adv. 
without uninflectedness upon Damm or the Tanwin of 
compensation may not be disapproved ; and, since the 
object mentioned is effected by means of 31 , and the 

advs. mentioned are future and past, 3( is divested of the 
sense of the past, and becomes denotative of unrestricted 
adverbiality, so that it may be used in the future [204]

also, as 4#iifcJJ J£*»> Jjji LIL 11, Then woe on 
that day to them that treat the signs of God as false and 


the like. But the truth is that 31 , when the post, is sup- 
pressed, and the Tanwin substituted for it, otherwise 


than in such as 3t#^ , may be pronounced with Fath 

also, whence JJ^I^ Wj I3l (%>& XXVI. 19, / 
did it then, when I was one of the erring, i. e. J did it 
when thou hadst brought me up, since requital [594] 
has no meaning here. The adv. pre. to the prop, being 
an adv. to the inf. n. implied by the prop., as we stated 
before, a pron. may not relate to it from the prop. [124], 

so that &a* ±t) fv*S f jd *-£a£>I is not said, because, the

ed by prefixing the adv. to the prop., and making it an

to a single word in sense,, for which reason a conj. does 
not gpvern a conjunct, nor an appos. an ant., nor a post. 
a pre. : whereas the cond. word, when governed by the

whereas, when restrained by U or the J , and pre. to

Fath [201] (IY,IA). Some hold that the J! prefixed to

means At this time ; but some, among whom is IM, hold 
that it is red,, and that ^Vf is uninfl, because \t implies the

I think is that ^t] is made det. by the J expressed in 
it, which is inseparable from it, because the det. is always

yesterday of the speaker's day is meant, the determina- 
tive J denoting knowledge is prefixed to it ; but is then 
suppressed and supplied, because the mind of every one 
that bears «-*•' free from prothesis immediately flies to 
the yesterday of the speaker's day, so that it becomes

[the combination of (IY)] deviation (IY, Fk) from *»*V\ 
(Fk) with determination (IY), [i. e.] with the quality of 
proper name [18] (Fk): (b) the difference between de- 
viation [from the p. (IY)] and implication [of it (IY)] 
is that with deviation the p. may be expressed, but not 
with implication (I Y, YS), for which reason what de- 
viates is ifl/!., and what implies is uninfl.; and thereby 

' ' ' 

is known the secret of the inflectedness of p- T [18] and 


the uninflectedness of j-*J according the Hijazis : but 
some say that deviation is alteration of the lit. form of the 
word while its sense remains, and that implication is the 
use of it in its origiual sense with another sense super- 
added (YS): (c) Z and many of the GG say that ««*f

i. e. in all states, being perhaps misled by the verse

by the words " some of the Banu Tamlm" and " after

authority of this verse, that, according to some of the

Yesterday has passed with what was in it (IY) ; but this

is strange (IY, R). S says that, if you name a man j*+1 
according to the dial, of AlEHjaz, you make it triptote, 
like JJl* [200] when used as a name, because every 
uninfl. single term used as a name for a person must be 
infi. as a triptote [191]: and, according to the dial, of 
[most of] the Banu Tamlm also, you make it triptote in 
the [3] cases, because it must be made triptote in the 
ace. and gen., since it is uninfl. upon Kasr according to 
them ; and, when you make it triptote in the two cases, 
you must do so in the nom. also, since there is no n. in 
the language triptote in the ace. and gen. and diptote in 
the nom. (R). But, when one of the preceding conditions- 


is wanting (Fk), [i. e.] when j»+\ (1) is indet. (R), 
[which occurs] when it means some day or other of the

ness, vid. the supply of tl^e J (R) : (a) the synarthrous 

j^S is sometimes uninfl. (R, YS), perhaps because the 
J is construed to be red. (R) ; and, in the verse [of

**«S is related with [Fat£ as being an infl. adv., and (Sh)] 
Kasr as being uninfl. (Sh, YS): (b) the cause of its inflec- 
tion in the du. and pi. is that the J is supplied only 
because the mind immediately flies to one of the genus on 
account of its notoriety among its likes ; whereas, when 


«**•! is dualized or pluralized, that specified one no 


longer remains (R): (c) according to AH (YS), j»+)

H, and IM (Sh), as likewise by IB (YS),] to have a 
dim. (Sh, YS), in which case it is infl., according to all, 
as when it is a broken pi. (Sh). If, however, [the anar-

which there is no relation (IH) at all, either at present 
or before the composition. We say "real or predica- 

mental" in order to include such as *dj*6-» [4], because 

its last member, being a sound not applied to denote a 
meaning, is not a word [1], but is in the predicament of 
a word, since it is treated as an uninfi. n. ; and IH says 
44 between which there is no relation" in order to exclude 

such ag ftVI J** and f;S I*fG [4], because between the 

two members of each of them there is a relation [explained

Digitized by VjOOQlC

[210] the form of the composition does not indicate any 
relation at all ( Jm). The comps. are of two kinds, (1) a 
kind whose composition requires the two ns. to be uninfl. 
together, as 5>A* together with its unit [210], jaxj j^ft^ , 

/ /A 

etc. [211], and $ j 1 ^' [212]; (2) a kind whose compo- 
sition requires only the 1st of them to be uninfl., as 
>** 3^i [213], 4- 3 *t\ [214], and LfyJ^ [215] 

• • /' ' '• A* 

(M). Z'puts £*> ^oO or to* ^ob and U« ^J [215]

> y A/- 

in the cat. of ^j&j** ; but S puts them in the cat. of 

^iU &«»+£. , which is more probable, though it be only 
by way of assimilation, not because the 2nd implies [the 
sense of] a p. [209] : for, if the matter were as Z says, 
g*> and ]*> would necessarily be declined as triptotes 
by affixion of Tanwln to them, because they contain 
composition only, without the quality of proper name 
[18], whereas they have not been heard pronounced with 
Tanwln; and similarly U~ would necessarily be pro- 
nounced with Tanwln, because it is here the name of a 
many not of a tribe, as it is interpreted in XXVII. 22. 
[18] (R). 

§ 209. The distinction between the two kinds is that 
(M), if the 2nd [member (Jm)] imply [the sense of 
(IY)] a [con. of other (Jm)] p., both [members (M, Jm)] 
are uninfl., [as y&*e jA.f (210) and jvj ji**. (211) 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 813 ) 

(VY), because the cause of uninflectedness exists in each 
of them, since the 1st \n. (IY)} becomes {through the 
composition like part of a »., being (IY)} in the samq 
position as the beginning of a word towards its end, while 
the 2qd implies the sense of the p. (M)] ; but, if not, the 
2nd is iojl, and the 1st uninfl. (M, IH), in the corrected 

(IH) dial. (Jm), as ^fyJH [215] (IY). 

* • 

§ 210. The <j./. of the num. exceeding 10 is that 

the 2nd should be coupled to the 1st, as V**J ^ > 
then the two ns, [the unit and the decimal (IY)] are 
amalgamated into o^e, and are uninfl. [211, 318] because 
of the existence of the two causes [209], Some of the 

Arabs make the £ quiescent, saying >&* u^l [and 

/ • A • /I' 

^A* &£U (IY)] to guard against the succession of [6 or 
5 (IY)] mobiles in one word, [not more than 4 mobiles 
being combined in one word ; but this is not done in 
yju* Uuf (318), because two quiescents would then be com- 
bined ; and because, the \ and £ being quiescent, there is 
not the same succession of mobiles in these two words as 

there is in J»s ja.| and the like ; and because they are 

not compounded, m that they are not one word (IY)]. 

The determinative p. and prothesis do not spoil the

§ 216. Metonymy in classical and conventional 
language is denoting a particular thing, whether it be 
an expression or a meaning, by an expression not plainly 
indicative of it, (1) for the sake of perplexing some of 
the hearers, as in your saying ^Ui ^A* Such a one 
came to me, when you mean Zaid ; (2) because of the 
unseemliness of the thing expressed, like ^ for the 
vulva or foul act [14] ; (3) for the sake of abridgment, 
like the prons. relating to a preceding expression [160]; 
(4) for a sort of elegance, like oLjff ^S Plentiful in 
ashes for *)SM )& Plentiful in hospitality ; (5) for 
some other object. If the thing denoted by the met. be 
an expression, what is intended is (1) the meaning of 
that expression, as in

riddles, as U&f f \^jiS\ for &+£* ; (b) the measures used 
in the conventional language of the GG to denote the 
words measured by them, as tJ/^u V &«* J*iJ [9], i. e. 

3, hi 

J*if , wAen an epithet, is not declined as a triptote, where 
J*if denotes a word whose initial is an aug. Hamza 
followed by a quiescent l3 , followed by an s pro- 
nounced with Fath, followed by a J , and similarly with 
the other measures. According to this, then, the interrog. 

f [217] is a met., because it denotes a question about a 

* * * / h, 

particular number; and so are 4* [182], U [180], UuT 

t 207 ]> ^S [206], and other interrog. ns., because each 
of them is a question about a particular thing not plainly 
expressed by its name ; and so are all the cond. ns., 

because the cond. and interrog. words are in the sense of 


g\ , which, whether cond. or interrog. [184], is applied 

to denote a particular thing. These ns., whether cond. 

or interrog., are used as mets. for unlimited particular 

things, for the sake of abridgment, since, if, instead of 
' A * ht & + ht a^ $

particular things, as we have explained. AH mets. are

not uninfl. ; for ^Ui and &HS , which belong to fhem by 
common consent [14], ar.e infl. (R). The [uninfl. (IY, 
R)] »»efe. are f , \& , [and ^tf (R, A)] for [vague 

* A / ' A • 

(M)] number, and is^xf and e^o for the narrative [226] 
(M, 1H, A) and announcement (M). The interrog. and 
cowrf. fl*. [184] are not reckoned here, because they have 
another cat. y [that of the conjunct or adv.,] to which 
they are more appropriate. Thus the mets. are like the 
adts. [201] in being of two kinds, infl. and uninfl. (R). 


§ 217. ff is a n. denoting number vague (I A, A) in 
genus and quantity [226] (A). It is [of two kinds (M, 
ML, A),] (1) interrog., [meaning How many? (ML, A)]; 
(2) enunciatory (M, IA, ML, A), meaning How many! 

A ^ 

(ML, A). The interrog. and enunciatory J both denote 
number and numbered, the interrog. denoting number 
vague to the speaker, but known to the person addressed 
in the opinion of the speaker; and the enunciatory 
denoting number vague to the hearer [223], and seldom 
known to the speaker : while the numbered is unknown 
to the speaker in the interrog. and enunciatory (R); and 
[for this reason (R)] each of them needs a sp. [below] 
(R, IA, A) explanatory of the numbered (R). The sp. of 

the 1st is like that of ^r** and its sisters [85, 315], 

being an ace. [224] sing. [220] : and the sp. of the 2nd is

made a subst. for it ; (d) the pron. relates to it ; and (e) it 
is an obj. [218, 222] (IY) : (2) they are uninfi. (IY, ML, A), 
because (a) the interrog. implies the sense, and occurs in 
the place, of the p. [159] ; and (b) the enunciatory is of the 
same letter as the interrog., and occurs in the place of ^ 
[605], which it resembles in that ^ denotes paucity of 

the genus, and J multitude of it, while every genus con- 
tains much and little, the much being compounded of the 
little, and the little being part of the much, so that much 
and /tW/e are partners (I Y) : (S) their uninflectedness is 
upon quiescence [159] (IY, A): (4) they are vague (ML): 
(5; they need a sp. [above] (ML, A) because of their vague- 
ness: (6) [219] (A): (7) [225] (IH)i (8) they [must (ML, 
A)] take the head of the sentence (IH, ML, IA, A), (a) 
the interrog. because of the interrogation [584] ; and (b) 
the enunciatory because of the originative sense implied 
by it in denoting multitude, as ^ must take the head 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 827 ) 

of the sentence because of the originative sense implied by 
it in denoting paucity [505] (R): and therefore they are 
not governed by what precedes them [445], except the 
pre. n. and prep. [218] : (9) they are parsed alike [218] 
(A): (10) [223] t (11) [222] (R). They differ in [8 (A)] 
matters:— (1) the sentence with the ennnciatory admits 
of being pronounced true or false, contrary to the 
sentence with the interrog. [1]: (2) the enunciatory 
does not require a reply, contrary to the interrog.: (3) 
the subst. for the enunciatory is not conjoined with the 
Bam2a, as ^f*~ J* ^ y^ ^J j*a* J> Boto many slaves

the interrog. [154], as ^fti ^ ^jy^l U3U J How

Twenty or thirty f : (4^ the sp. of the interrog. is [prig.

tory is [orig. (A)] in the gen. [224] : (5) [220] (ML, A): 
(6) [221] : (7) the interrog. does not indicate multitude ; 
whereas the enunciatory does, contrary to the opinion 
of ITr and his pnpil 1Kb : (8) the enunciatory is peculiar 

to the pret., like y^y [605].

allow it, because what is not allowable in the ant is 
allowable in the appos. [538], as Jj #UM ^Uf [112]

ought not to relate to it, which is the truth, because, if 


you might interrogate with f about the number of the 
multitude who came to the person addressed distributed 
into two and two, you would be obliged to say ^*h-)/,

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 833 ) 

it is a met. for number vague to the hearer [217], so that 
the numbered also are made vague, in order to be more 
indicative of the vagueness of their number (R). You 

say l-0 &;£* J or ti£+ or *i* f >*£■ How many other

«f/c/ [538] and m**^ S& -f [114], it is because the 
coupled also is indet. [262] (R). 

§ 224. As to the case of the sp. of the interrog. 
there are three opinions, (1) that the ace. [221] is 
necessary unrestrictedly, [i. e. whether a prep, be pre- 


fixed to (f or not (Sn)] : (2) that it is not necessary ; 
but that the gen. [221] is allowable, unrestrictedly, by 


assimilation to [the sp. of] the enunciatory J [225]: 
this is the opinion of Fr, Zj, and Sf; and the saying 

00 i/ A/ 

£l! i+* J [below] is thus explained by most, [upon the 
ground that J is an ironical' interrog. (Sn)] : (3) that 

A s 

9 it is necessary if a prep, be not prefixed to J , and 
preferable to the gen. if a prep, be prefixed to it : this is 
the well known opinion ; and S does not mention the 


gen. except when a prep, is prefixed to f (A). The 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 834 ) 
gen. is allowable only when f is governed in the gen. 

* A>/ A 0O * h A * 

by a prey. (R, ML), as s&»iy&\ *&)J A [515] (ML, A), 
in which case the sp. may be in (1) the ace, [which is 
frequent (ML)] ; (2) the gen. (R, ML, A), contrary to 

A s 

the opinion of some (ML), in order that f and its sp. 
may agree in case (R). As some assert (ML), some of 
the Arabs (IY, R), the Banu Tamim (IY, ML, A), make 


the enunciatory f govern its [sing. (R, ML, A) or pi. 
(R, Sn)] sp. in the ace. (IY, R, ML, A), even without 
separation [221] (R), as though they supplied Tanwln in 
it [84] ; which is good Arabic, though the gen. is more 
frequent (IY). And the verse [of AlFarazdak (M, ML, 
Sn), who was a Tamlml (IY, Sn),] 

* Sf •• A/// A/ *m»*h* ****** * * * *£, A* 


is related with (1) the ace., (a) by supposing f to be [an 
ironical (ML, A)] interrog., How many paternal aunts of 
thine, Jarir, and maternal aunts, bow4egged have 
milked in spite of me my lately delivered she-camels ?; [(b) 
according to the dial, of Tamim, How many a paternal 

aunt of thine, Jarzr, and maternal aunt, have milked 


etc/ (IY, ML, A)] : (2) the gen., by supposing f to be 
[an ironical interrog. (above) or] enunciatory [217]: 
(3) the nom. [as an inch. (2$) (IY, ML, A)], by sup- 
posing the sense to bq How many (times) (M, ML, A) or

position that J is enunciatory, or tf?j or &a!^ upon the

a 2nd c&~a1^> o$ being necessarily supplied [as enunc. of 

&ILL or &** (Sn, DM)], because the wm?&. in this case is 
multiple in letter and sense (ML, A)* 


§ 225. When the sp. of the interrog. J is in the 
gen. [224], it is governed, [according to the GG (R),] 


by j* [necessarily (ML)] understood [515], [which is 


the opinion of Khl, S, Fr, and many (A)] ; but, accord- 
ing to Zj, by prothesis (R, ML, A), as in the case of 
the enunciatory (R). The enunciatory is pre. to its sp. 
T221], governing it as every pre. governs the post. [110] 


(M). £* is [frequently (M)] prefixed [to the sp. (IY, 

' A' 

R, Jm)] after the [interrog. and (IH)] enunciatory J 
(M, IH) : that construction is frequent in the cfcse of 
the enunciatory (R, Jm), as VII. 3. [126] and LIIL 26* 
[222] (M, R, Jm), because the prothesis here is render- 
able by ^m [111], fts in t U ^b[85] (IY), [and]be- 

' ' Ax 

cause the sp. then agrees in case with the sp. post, to £ ; 

Digitized by VjOOQlC 

( 836 ) 
but, as for the interrog. £ , I have not met with its ap. 


governed in the gen. by ^ in poetry or prose, nor is its 


allowability indicated by any book on grammar (R, Jm), 
nor do I know what is the truth of it (R) : so says R ; 

but Z [followed by B] allows f in II. 207. [62] to be 
interrog. and enunciatory (Jm). And, when the «p. is 
governed in the gen. by ^*, then J is [necessarily (R)] 
construed to be pronounced with Tanwin [110] (M, R), 
as though you said ^jiff j* $$S and &3UJf ^* ; while, 

A / 

according to some, [vid. the KK (IY),] S is always 
[construed to be (IY)] pronounced with Tanwin, the 


gen. after it being governed by ^ [expressed or (IY)] 
understood (M).

III. 140. (24) (ML),] and sometimes interrogation

§ 228. Dualization is the addition of one n. to an- 
other like it (IY). The du. is that \n. (IY)] to whose 
final 2 augments, (I) an f [in the nom. (IY)], or a j 
[in the ace. and gen. (IY)] preceded by a letter pro- 
nounced with Fatfc, and (2) a ^ pronounced with Kasr, 
are affixed, in order that the 1st [aug. (IY)] may be a 
sign of the addition of sing, to sing., [and a compensa- 
tion for the suppressed n. (IY),] and the other may be a 
compensation for what is prevented [by the addition of 
another n. (IY)], vid. the vowel and Tanwin existing in 
the sing. (M). The o. f. of the du. [andp/. (R)] is 
[said to be (R)] coupling (IY, R) with the j [539] (R). 
The du. is that [n. (YS)] which indicates two [things 
(YS)] and serves instead of 2 \ns.~\ coupled together, like 

^Wyi The two Zaids, its o.f. being *i)) ±t) Zaid and 

Zaidj from which they deviate out of dislike to the pro- 
lixity and tautology (Fk). This is shown by the fact 
that the poet, when constrained, reverts to coupling 
(IY, R), which is frequent in poetry (IY) ; and that cou- 
pling sometimes occurs anomalously in prose (R) : and 
it is confirmed by the fact that you do not put the du.

one of the 2 expressions does not indicate the other

anomaly or exigency. And, in order to denote multipli-

agreement in .letter ; (6} agreement in sense ; (7) objec- 
tive existence of a second to it ; (8) that the place of its 
du. should not be supplied by the du. of another word

kinds, prolonged and unprolonged. The prolonged [229] 
is every n. whose final is a Hamza preceded by an aug. 

I, as /Uf and ik> ; [683,723] (IY). The Hamza of 
the prolonged is [of 4 kinds (R)], (1) substituted for the f 
of femininization, as i!>** [263] ; (2) denotative of co- 
ordination, as s UU [273] ; (3) converted from a rad. [ • 

or ^(R)], as/U [and iU^(lA)] ; (4) ratf., as /I/ 
(R, IA). The Hamza [substituted for the f (IA, A)] of 
femininization is usually converted into j (R, I A, A), as 
^jiy^^ (IA, A): and is rarely sounded true, as ^s\^s^ ; 
or, [as Mb transmits from Mz (R),] converted into « , 

. / /A • 

as u >'d';* a » (R, A) : but Sf asserts that, when its I is 

' Si*, A • 

preceded by a y as if^, the Hamza must be sound- 

edtrue, as ^sSy***, not \^^^, in order that 2 ,s 

having only an ! between them may not be combined • 
aud the KK in that case allow both methods (A). The 
rad. Hamza is [usually (R)] preserved [in the tfw. (R, A), 

as ^Af and u)^; ( IA » A) } but F transmits from 

s Si J 

some of the Arabs that it is converted into * , as ^f Jy>

preserved, [as JAA* , JA~* , and ^f/Ua- (IA, A)] ; 

but conversion is better in the Hamza denotative of co- 
ordination, and preservation in the one converted from 
a rad. (R, IA, A) : so IM mentions, agreeably with the 
opinion of some ; but S and Akh, followed by Jz, declare 
that preservation is better unrestrictedly, though S men- 
tions that conversion is more frequent in the Hamza 
denotative of coordination than in the one converted 
from a rad. } while it is rare in both (A), The Hamza 
[substituted for a rad. (R)] is sometimes converted into 

& > I* 8 u)^ 1 ^ (A)]; though this is anomalous (R, A), 

contrary to the opinion of Ks : and they treat ^y** 

as sound [721], because they convert only the final j 

or ^e into Hamza after the I , as s^S and ilo * ; 

, whereas here the ^ * s no ' final, since the sing, is not 
used [228]. The 2 augs. of femininization [273] (R), 
the f and Hamza (A), when they follow 4 or more let* 

ters (R), are sometimes elided [together (A)], as ^U^GJ 

* » * * * * * * * * 

[and Jtyr** > h 7 analo gy i^; 1 *^ and dfor*** ( A), 

because of the length (R)]; though this is anomalous (R, 
A), contrary to the opinion of the KK (R). The anomalies 

in the prolonged are 5, (1) ^Mj**, , which, as Ns re- 

• * A • 

lates, is allowed by the KK ; (2) ^j**, which, as 
some relate, is the dial of FazSra ; (3) ^U-rt? , which

is held by the KK to be regular ; (4) ^Ly/ , which is 

held by Ks to be regular, and is transmitted by AZ from 

the dial, of Fazara ; (5) ^l/ , though the language 

of some GG implies that it has not been heard (A). The 
Unprolonged is every n. whose final is a Hamza not pre-

of 2 dus. united in letter by the prothesis, and in 
sense, since the intention is that the pre. should be 
part of the post., while no ambiguity is produced 
by the omission of dualization ; and id. [prothesis] 
is made to accord with the lit. : but, if the omis- 
sion lead to ambiguity, only the du. is allowable accord-

Mother of the Believers (Is), JJafsa Bint 'Umar Ibn AlKhaftab, i 8 said 
to have been born [when l£uraish were building the House (Nw),] 5 
years before the Mission [of the Prophet (Nw)] ; was married by the 
Apostle of God [after 'A'isha (Is)] in the year 2 or 3, [the latter date 
being preferable (Is)] ; and died in the year 27, [28 (Nw),] 41, 45, (Nw, 
Is), 47, or 50, at the age of 60 (Nw). Between the Hijra and the birth 
of the Apostle of God were 53 years 2 months and 8 days ; between the 
Hijra aud the Mission of the Apostle of God were 13 years 2 months and 

8 days ; and between the Hijra and the death of the Apostle of God were 

9 years 11 months and 22 days (AF). The Hijra is the beginning of 
the Islam! era (Nw, AF) ; and the first [person] that dated by the 
Hijra was 'Umar Ibn AlKhaftab in the year 17 of the Hijra (Nw). 
The Hijra occurred (AF, TKh) in the 14th year of the Mission (TKh), 
when AlMufcarram, gafar, and 8 days of Rabl' alAwwal had elapsed. 
So, when they resolved upon founding [the era of] the Hijra, they 
went back 68 days, and made the beginning of the era the 1st of 
AlMuljarram of this year. Then they computed from the 1st of 
AlMu^arram to the last day of the Prophet's life, and it was 10 years 
and 2 months ; whereas, when his age is really reckoned from the Hijra, 
he is found to have lived 9 years 11 months and 22 days after it, [the 

. difference between the 2 periods being 2 months and 8 days, i.e. 68 
days] (AF). [But the assertion that the period from thn 1st of 
AlMufcarram in the year of the Hijra to the last day of the Prophet's 
life was 10 years and 2 months is difficult to reconcile with the atat*

# ment that] he died (God bless him, and give him peace t) in the forenoon, 
[or, as is said, at midday (AF),] on Monday, when 12 nights were left, 
[i.e. on the 18th,] of Rabf alAwwal in the year It [of the Hijra 
(Nw), i.e. 10 years 2 months and 18 days from, and including, the 1st 
6f AlMuljarram in the year of the Hijra], He died at the age of 63, % 
the [most correct and (Nw)] best*known [opinion] ; or, as is said, 65 or 
60 (Nw, AF). The preferable opinion is that he was sent [on his 
Apostolic Mission] at 40 years, and abode in Makka calling [the 
unbelievers] to Allslam 13 years and a fraction, and abode at AlMadtna 
after the Hijra nearly 10 years; and that is 63 years and some fractions 
(AF). If, then, IJafsa was born 5 years before the Mission, she was 
18 or a little more at the beginning of the Hijrl era ; so that, if she 
lived 60 years, she died in 41.
